I really hope this is taking so long because we're about to get a release like this:
"Police found the suspect after he had apparently taken his own life. Medical examiners ruled that Dzhokar Tsarnaev committed suicide by beating himself about the head and neck with police batons and then shoving his head up his own ass."
Stolen from the Pit, but here's a recap:
Like many of you, I've only been around for bits and pieces of this ordeal today. Here's a timeline of what's gone on so far.
April 18, 5 p.m. (all times ET and approximate) – The FBI releases photos and a surveillance video that show two men.
7:10 p.m. – FBI has begun receiving names in response to their release of photos.
10:20 p.m. – Gunshots are reported on the MIT campus.
Around 10:30 p.m. – An MIT police officer is found shot in his vehicle. He is taken to Massachusetts General Hospital and pronounced deceased. Shortly after the shooting, police receive a report of an armed carjacking in a separate section of Cambridge. The carjacking victim is held at gunpoint by two males for a half hour before being released unhurt at a gas station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge, according to a statement by the Middlesex District Attorney.
Some time after this – it’s unclear exactly when – police engage in a pursuit into Watertown following the carjacked vehicle. Explosive devices are reportedly thrown from the SUV, according to the district attorney’s statement, and an MBTA police officer is seriously injured. One of the suspects is critically injured, and later pronounced deceased, according to the statement
11:20 p.m. – Authorities continue to investigate what is now considered an “active shooter incident” on the MIT campus and people are told to stay indoors and away from the area. Around this time, the suspects tried to use a debit card stolen from the man whose car they jacked to withdraw money from three ATMs, a person with direct knowledge of the incident told NBC’s Pete Williams. The first attempt was unsuccessful, but they withdrew $800 on the second attempt. At the third ATM, at 11:20 p.m., a withdrawal was denied for exceeding the man’s daily limit.
11:41 p.m. – MIT alert says that injuries have been reported in the shooting on campus. “The situation is still very active and we ask everyone to stay inside.”
11:44 p.m. – The Massachusetts State Police say in a statement that the search for a suspect or suspects is considered ongoing.
April 19, about 12:15 a.m. – A statement from the Middlesex District Attorney says Cambridge police and the Massachusetts State Police are investigating a “fatal shooting” in Cambridge, believed to be the MIT officer. Residents are currently under lockdown in their home in Watertown, Mass., where police engaged in a shootout with the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing last night.
1:31 a.m. – MIT advises people on campus to remain indoors. “Police have NOT determined that the campus is safe.”
1:51 a.m. – National Guard and FBI are on scene in Watertown, and have secured a perimeter.
1:57 a.m. – “Police have determined that the suspect in this evening’s shooting is no longer on campus,” MIT tweets. “It is now safe to resume normal activities.”
2 a.m. – The FBI releases four new photos of the two men, one in a white hat and one in a black hat, at the Boston Marathon.
2:20 a.m. – The New York Times publishes an article quoting Watertown residents who say that two men hid behind a black Mercedes SUV and engaged in a shootout with a large number of police officers. The men, about 200 feet apart, exchanged “constant gunfire,” and the two shooters lit an explosive that lands in the space between themselves and the police, then exploded. One of the two men then ran toward police and was tackled, an eyewitness tells the Times.
About 2:45 a.m. – While it is known that one suspect is down in Watertown, it is still not clear whether or not the shooting at MIT and the firefight in Watertown are related to the Boston Marathon bombings.
2:54 a.m. – Watertown resident and eyewitness Andrew Kitzenberg tells MSNBC that authorities have deployed a bomb squad robot near where the shootout occurred.
4:16 a.m. – Two law enforcement sources tell NBC News that the suspect pictured in the black hat is dead, and the suspect in the white hat is at-large and considered armed and dangerous. The officials say the shootings at MIT and in Watertown are directly related to the marathon bombings. MSNBC's Willie Geist, Â Mika Brzezinski and Mike Barnicle talk about the "unprecedented events" which led to the entire city of Boston being placed on lockdown.
4:19 a.m. – Officials in Watertown ask all residents to shelter in place.
4:35 a.m. – Watertown police officers continue to search the neighborhood on foot and in patrol cars.
5:01 a.m. – Officials tell NBC News that the two suspects in the bombing and MIT cop slaying appear to have international ties and may have military experience. The deceased suspect had an improvised explosive device strapped to him, officials say.
5:20 a.m.-6:30 a.m. – Local universities and colleges including Harvard, Boston University, Emerson College, Boston College, and MIT cancel classes and tell students to remain in place. Boston Public Scools suspended all activities.
5:45 a.m. – All MBTA service is canceled throughout the city.
6:30 a.m. – Amtrak service into and out of Boston South Station is delayed by police activity. Train service between Boston and Providence, R.I., is temporarily suspended.
6:40 a.m. – NBC’s Ron Allen reports a convoy of about 15 military Humvees and a few civilian buses head into Watertown.
7 a.m. – More than 400,000 people shelter in place in the neighborhoods of Cambridge, Newton, Waltham, Brighton, Watertown, and Allston-Brighton. Authorities say the two suspects are brothers.
About 7:30 a.m. – The two suspects are identified as brothers. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was identified as the suspect in the white hat and was still at-large. He was born in Kyrgyzstan. His brother, Tamerlan Tzarnaev, 26, was born in Russia, authorities said. He was the deceased suspect.
8 a.m. – Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick urges all residents in Boston and the surrounding area to remain indoors as authorities engage in a “massive manhunt.” The shelter in place instruction is extended across the city.
About 10 a.m. – The deceased MIT police officer is identified as Sean Collier, 26, of Somerville. A former civilian employee of the Somerville Police Department, he had served at MIT since January 2012, according to a release from the Middlesex district attorney.
12:30 p.m. – Authorities request that residents remain in their homes, saying that about 60 percent of the area they want to search in Watertown had been covered without an apprehension.
"It's just so hard," Greivis said. "It's my heart, my love. Maryland made me who I am."
That would be it.
Also, anyone remember the "explosives heard on the Harvard Quad?" Was that just completely false?
So when does Seal Team 6 show up?
Just wanted to thank everyone who posts a warning on attached pictures. I really appriciate it.
News channels reporting that the brothers, especially the older one, have posted many al-Qaeda-sympathetic videos online, some in english and some in russian. IMO these guys are definitely radical Islamist terrorists either linked or very sympathetic to AQ goals and visions
Dude on msnbc saying in his opinion they are part of al queda because of the events last night. Some new news better break before we end up at war in a few minutes.
This guy, as of right now, has a much better chance of banging a chick this weekend than do I.
Not every dude with a Swastika tattoo reports directly to Hitler.
Link to chad?
What happened to Megyn Kelly on Fox? A few years ago I thought she was the cutest on TV but now she sounds like a SamCro old lady.
Not sure who this guy is but wow. Tom ridge on and is trying to ignore him. In the matter of a minute he went to alqueda to Pakistan Taliban, and now chech terrorists are giving them marching orders. Only reasons that they did not use a suicide bomb on Monday as they would later like times square guy. That part was made up.
Well, he does have a gun and doesn't seem afraid to point it at people.
Redirecting the SWAT team to a new location, sounds like.

Why? It's not like we can do anything else, barring an invasion of FATA or something crazy like that.
Regardless, they're almost certainly not.
Looking for a car in Connecticut now.
They could be Chech & Chong
Is this Uncle Ruslan?
44 years old and he's still got it.
Again? Or are you citing old news?
a Honda civic; 1999
IDK--SIAP. Just saw it announced as alert, but I've been in and out today.
Bring back Uncle Raslan, this Aunt sucks.
So the CR-V was ditched for a Civic?
Just so I have this - where did the 19-year-old ditch the SUV? If he drove over his dying brother and through the blockade shouldn't there have been a car chase?
